Our sponsorship program recognises the vital contribution that businesses, government agencies, and not-for-profit organisations play in the development of our social capital and quality of life through events and activities in Lake Macquarie City.
Applications are assessed against weighted selection criteria on a monthly basis, applications are then presented at a Council budget meeting for approval. To be considered, applications must be received two months prior to a scheduled Council budget meeting.
Applications are now closed for sponsorship of events in the 2016/2017 financial year. The opening round for 2017/2018 financial year applications is yet to be announced.
